Musical remake of "Libeled Lady" doesn't come close to matching the 1936 screwball classic but is mildly entertaining. Williams, Johnson, Ball, and Wynn are no match for the stellar cast of Myrna Loy, William Powell, Jean Harlow, and Spencer Tracy. Johnson and Williams are too bland in the lead roles. Lucy provides a few chuckles; upon learning that Johnson may be married to two women, she says, "That's arson." The funniest scene has her getting drunk with Johnson. Williams gets a dip in the pool but the musical numbers are not memorable and probably contribute to the lethargic pacing. By comparison, the original zipped along at a rapid pace.
